Karissa is the perfect example of finding the right fit for a company and allowing that employee to flourish. Karissa joined the Executive Group team in 2014 as a recruitment assistant, drawn to the dynamic environment and opportunity to work within the recruitment industry.
“I later became a researcher for the Executive Group, which gave me the opportunity to explore a variety of industries,” says Karissa. “That led me to focusing on recruiting for industrial manufacturing companies, including the automotive and forest product industries.”
Karissa has worked to develop an expansive network of contacts among industry professionals, allowing her to find the right technology, automation, maintenance and engineering candidates. She takes the time to get to know each client, including their culture, focus and goals.
“Each of my clients is different and so is each of the candidates I talk with,” she says. “My job is to listen to both sides, evaluating personality, skills, location, and other factors. It’s about finding that exact fit.”
Originally from Helena, Montana, Karissa loves reading, playing softball and, most of all, spending time with her family.
